Lots on tap this week

Some times I just don’t know where the years slip away to.  It’s already December – how did that happen?  And it’s not like December is a quiet month – despite what people may say – not for me at least.

I’ve been looking forward to this week for a while.  Why?  Because the Society for New Communications Research Symposium is happening here in Boston.  If you’re in town and interested in attending, let me know and I can hook you up with a sweet deal.  You can also register here.

Now I go to all kinds of events but I’ve been looking forward to this one in particular because I’ll be presenting – along with John Cass, Paul Gillin and Richard Nacht – initial results from our New Influencer study.  So far what we’ve found is interesting.  It mostly boils down, at least in the area that I am working on, to the fact that people are totally into social media but aren’t really thinking about the right things when they’re trying to judge and understand influence.  I’d say more but then people might not come to the event . . .

I’m also super thrilled to be presenting as award on Wednesday night.  Being an award presenter has been one of my long time dreams and I can’t believe it is going to come true.  (Now if I can only loose 40 lbs. between now and tomorrow I should be able to fit into my tux . . .).  I’m also going to be moderating a panel on Thursday afternoon so if the doctor prescribed more GregPC you’ll get your fill over the next couple of days.

And if this wasn’t enough . . . There’s also a Social Media Club/Boston event on Thursday night.  It’s going to take place after the SNCR Symposium and will be focused on the future of social media.  You can register and get all the details on the SMC/B wiki.
